Attendees are invited to place an angel ornament on a Christmas tree in memory of loved ones they have lost to a violent crime or to honor their own survival of a violent crime.

There will be Christmas music from the Embers Quartet and refreshments will be served following the ceremony.

The Tree of Angels will be moved to the Tom Green County Justice Center on Friday to be displayed.
